Anyone ever have their account stolen?

My account was stolen recently (I made the mistake of using the same password on Bethesda's forums, and this is the only way I can think of it being stolen). I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this misfortune, and what kinda time span I can expect on the investigation MS is doing.

No, or at least nothing was charged. I've never put my credit card up before. They might have broken in and realized they had nothing to gain and left it alone.

Well, my card had been charged for $75 worth of MSPoints, and the account apparently locked (though the thief can still play on it).

I got my WoW account stolen...but customer service and the proper channels as well as precautions fixed that

.....the losers who stole it seem to be trying all they can to reclaim it....

It takes 1-2 months to get your account back because M$ customer support is s***.
